The Unitarian Church supports an active and enthusiastic music program.
The Chancel Choir practices in Gage Hall every Wednesday 7:00 to 8:30 pm, September to June, and rehearses at 10:00 am each Sunday in preparation for the 11:00 am Service. If you would like to join the choir, please contact Lin Raymond at email@example.com. Instrumental music, anthems and hymn choices represent a wide range of musical styles and texts, reflecting the nature of this denomination.
The Chalice Choir is open to all children in our RE program who want to raise their voices in joyful song. Amy Ball and Carol Oates lead the choir in rehearsals for 15 – 20 minutes every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary, with accompanist Max Hutton. The Chalice Choir sings for the Sunday morning service once a month. Our last service will be Sunday April 21, the Earth Day service. We will sing the introit, What Can I Do? by Joyce Poley, and the anthem with the Chancel Choir, Morning Has Broken. April 21 will be the last Chalice Choir rehearsal until the fall.
Special Music: Enhancing the services through music is a wonderfully satisfying endeavor. We have several members and friends of the congregation adding their talents to our services in the coming weeks.
June 2: Kiri Taylor sings "Imagine" by John Lennon.
If you would like to share your musical talents with the congregation for a service please contact Lin Raymond at the church office, 723-4617, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
